New Moon & the Leonids
Astronomical Influences for this Weekend
This weekend we have the New Moon in the sign of Scorpio on Saturday Nov 18 (exact new at 6:42 am EST/ 11:42 am UTC)
This New Moon strikes me as a good time to nurture your Inner Child – along with the actual children in your life (be they human kids, fur babies, loved ones or incoming spirit babies). They have been working hard and deserve some extra TLC. Have a snuggle, be silly, play a game, have a good cry or temper tantrum, eat ice cream for dinner, buy yourself a new toy.
And we have another meteor shower peaking this weekend – the Leonids – from the debris stream of 55P/Tempel-Tuttle comet. This comet has an orbit of 33 years around the Sun. The number 33 has some spiritual significance (Jesus, Buddha) so I wanted to mention this as it feels significant to me along with the trinity of Code Days of 10/10, 11/11, 12/12 that we are moving through this fall.
Comets leave debris fields in their wake, and then earth moves through the stream and the material burns up and emits light codes as we interact.
The dark night of the new moon is an excellent time for viewing the night sky. If you wake up in the early darks hours of night, grab a coat or a snuggly blanket, head outside and look up!
